YouTube - Biceps Tendon Tear -- Deadlift
Ouch indeed. I love his expression at the end.
That sucks, as a kid I watched my dad completely rupture one of his bicep tendons while lifting a roll up door. You could see the muscle all contracted up at the top of his arm, I was real young but it was one of those traumatic things I will never forget.
Dang he hit so hard it knocked his shoe off lol
Can't believe he was thinkin about his shoe.
I love his dedication to the lift.
I could see the pain etched on his face though, major ouch. He wouldnt be deadlifting for a while after that!
... Or actually doing much else upper body related. :icon_twis
Ouch!! now thats why i pull hook grip!
What's the cause of this injury? Bent elbows?
Just shows you what can happen in the sport of weightlifting, this is also why I now prefer double overhand grip in my dead lift, it feels more comfortable to me. Thanks for the video.
From the video description:
"I needed a token deadlift to win the Oxford-Cambridge powerlifting varsity. Instead I ruptured my distal biceps tendon on the opener. (Then I took a second attempt and locked it out for the win, torn biceps and all.)"
If true that's pretty hardcore... He doesn't have a video of the second lift up though.
So, best ways to prevent this?
Use a hook grip.
